Oregon Response to Instruction and Intervention (ORTIi) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2021 ORTIi Fall Virtual Reading Symposium. This day of learning, focused on supporting effective reading instructional practices, will take place on October 26 from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST and will be completely virtual, and completely free!
Literacy is a fundamental civil right, and it is our responsibility as educators to ensure that all children learn to read, regardless of race, gender, language, disability status, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.
Following an opening keynote from Dr. Tracy Weeden, breakout sessions will address a variety of topics related to ensuring effective and equitable reading instruction for our students. Breakout session presenters will include:
• DeJunne’ Clark Jackson
• Laura Stewart
• Louise Spear-Swerling
• Jan Hasbrouck
• Wiley Blevins
• Amanda Sanford & Julie Esparza Brown
All sessions will be presented via Zoom. The digital program for the conference will be available in early October, and will include full session titles and descriptions, as well as zoom links for all sessions.
We recognize the schedule may not work for everyone. If you are unable to attend the live conference, please know that sessions will be recorded and available on-demand from the ORTIi website, following their completion.
